Watch video recaps from BSFO’s breast cancer awareness week
Research shows that about 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer — and Black women are most likely to die from the disease. The UCOP Black Staff and Faculty Organization (BSFO) held its first-ever health week, from Oct. 25 – 29, 2021, featuring a variety of presentations focused on breast cancer education and awareness.
